Rated 5 out of 5 by Bahamamma55 Drone Cloud Rider
Awesome adult or older teen toy. easy to follow instructions that are outlined in the manual and read the manual well. Also included what was described in the presentation. Another good thing included is join the flyers club and get replacements parts free al is required shipping and handling.

This is an amazing drone. Easy to learn to fly. My 15 year old son was delighted to get this for Christmas. 5 days later it only flies left, and not much height. Sad;y it has to go back. I will try for waitlist and we'll see what happens with the next one. .
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dannylws Great drone, Well built, No problems at all
My wife bought the Propel Cloud Rider for me back in November for my birthday. She did not buy it from QVC and paid a lot more for it. And my Cloud Rider only came with one battery not two like here at QVC. I have been very careful leaning to fly the Cloud Rider, and have some confidence and ability now. This drone does not have an autopilot / auto hover feature or the live camera view like the Mini Orion which I have 2 of. The Cloud Rider does have a great camera which takes photos and videos at the touch of a button and stores them to the onboard SD card. The Cloud Rider needs constant input to the vertical control to maintain a given altitude. Aside from these shortcomings I love this drone and am very pleased every time I fly it. It's powerful and has great range. The fact that the Cloud Rider requires constant input to the controls takes it a step beyond the Mini Orion I mentioned earlier. The Cloud rider is not a toy and it doesn't feel like it. It has beginner settings to help someone learn and get used to it and as your abilities improve you can turn up the settings for better performance. I have had no problems with the Cloud Rider. Everything worked perfectly right out of the box. You can expect about 8 to 10 minutes of flight time per battery. That isn't long enough when you're having fun. So, buy extra batteries, I now have 4 batteries. It's very cool to be able to pop in a freshly charged pack and get back in the air. I would recommend this item.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Momofdisappointedboy Broken out of box
Purchased this product for my son for Christmas. Christmas morning we opened it and it was already broken. The wire that makes the whole drone work was broken off. I cannot even get support on the telephone or via email. Very disappointed and will be returning to QVC since I can't even get in touch with Propel.
